iCANwalk Pledge & iWalk Club
iCANwalk to school...can you? is a joint initiative of Green Communities Canada and the Heart and Stroke Foundation:
Schools can make a commitment to walk to school and at school more often throughout the school year by taking the iCANwalk to school…can you? pledge!
Although this activity is no longer funded schools can continue to record their walking and active travel activities throughout the school year on our web site and, with local support, offer incentives for student participation at the end of the school year. Click here to register and create a user id and password to allow you to track progress over the year.
Other walking promotion events throughout the year could include International Walk to School Day (iWalk), Walk & Wheel Wednesdays, “Winter Walk Day” in February, Earth Week (April), Spring into Spring, Environment Week (June) and Summer Safety Week to make walking events a celebration for the school! Just keep track of overall participation rates and log the kilometers walked or wheeled (cycling counts too).
Any school can have an iWalk Club! Visit the Safe Routes to School website for more resources to get one started in your school.
